Washington Post’s science writer Sarah Kaplan reports (March 31, 2020):
Psychologists are worried about the long-term effects of our new, socially distant reality. Decades of research has shown that loneliness and isolation are associated with high blood pressure, chronic inflammation, weakened immune systems and a host of other health issues.
But there is also hope in the data. Studies have revealed that human connection — something as simple as getting an offer of help from a stranger or looking at a picture of someone you love — can ease pain and reduce physical symptoms of stress. People who feel supported by their social networks are more likely to live longer. One experiment even found that people with many social ties are less susceptible to the common cold.

You can’t promote principled anti-corruption action without pissing off corrupt people.
Now let’s mull that over with a cup of hot tea with sugar.

Now that President Donald J. Trump has been impeached (yesterday), can the people of the United States begin to repair the damage wrought by him as I prayed last week?
I’m trying to be an optimist. I see a balancing act between this president and the American people. Donald Trump has fallen from grace. The American people are rising in a nascent recovery.
Of course, President Trump can wreak havoc over the next thirteen months. He ran for office on the premise of becoming the Disrupter-in-Chief, and he has kept his campaign promise.
Nevertheless, he can’t cease to be impeached. The U.S. Senate can render a verdict of not guilty in his trial, but he can never be exonerated in the sense of being declared innocent. (More of this to follow.)
I’ve had a stubborn cold and been drinking hot tea with lemon juice. It’s not quite tea with sugar, but I feel less tense since the House of Representatives adopted the articles of impeachment.

A saguaro cactus in my front yard raises its arms to the sky this morning at dawn.
With the help of Heaven, the people of the United States can begin to repair the damage wrought by Donald J. Trump, soon-to-be impeached president of the U.S.
Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPhone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
You’ve shared it. Now let’s move on.
P.S.: My cousins are more mature.
